There's not an easy way to get the exit code; common practice is to set a property in the VBScript action, using Session.Property("MYPROP")="myvalue", and then use the property value back in the main installer.

Also to add to Robert's words of wisdom, usually you have the script run with on error resume next. Then at various points in your script you can read the err.number to see if an error occured. That way you can tailor the 'return code' dependant on the error in your"PROPERTY")
